Numerical modelling of tropospheric halogen chemistry

Ref: RA966

£30,424 to £36,298 per annum

Applications are invited for a Senior Research Associate in the School
of Environmental Sciences at UEA. The overriding aim of this project is
to quantify the role of halogen chemistry for the composition of the
troposphere. To this end existing reaction mechanisms (gas and aqueous
phase) will be extended and tested against available data. In addition,
simplified reaction schemes and parameterisations for the use in large
scale (including global) 3D models will be developed. This work will be
done in collaboration with partners who focus on the implementation of
the simplified mechanisms and parameterisations into a global model.
The successful applicant will have the following main tasks and

(i) To use an existing state-of-the-art 1D model (MISTRA) to improve the
condensed phase reaction mechanism and to develop a reduced chemical
reaction mechanism for inclusion into large-scale atmospheric models.

(ii) To develop parameterisations for the release of halogens from sea
spray aerosol and for heterogeneous cycling of halogen compounds for
inclusion into large scale models based on the detailed description in
the above mentioned 1D model.

(iii) To document the work; write scientific publications for
international, peer reviewed journals and present the work at
national/international conferences.

The successful candidate will have a degree in atmospheric sciences or
related field (ideally PhD or equivalent experience), knowledge in
atmospheric and/or condensed phase chemistry and ideally numerical
modelling. This is a full time post, with an intended start date of 15
August 2013 for a fixed term period of 21 months.

Closing date: 12 noon on 12 July 2013.

Prospective applicants are encouraged to discuss the position informally
